"Barbara Tetenbaum: A Retrospective of 25 Years as a Book Artist"
November 22, 2005 -- January 10, 2006
Barbara Tetenbaum has been making extraordinary books by hand under the
imprint of Triangular Press since 1979. Her work as an artist is
distinct, her imagery personal, and her influence wide. Join us to
celebrate the 25th anniversary of her wonderful work as a book artist
with an exhibition that features books, broadsides and printed ephemera
from the collection of the John Wilson Room, Special Collections of
Multnomah County Library as well as from the artist's personal collection.
As the head of Book Arts at Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland,
and in workshops and classes around the globe, including as a Fulbright
Scholar teaching in the Czech Republic, Tetenbaum has promoted and
developed traditional and experimental letterpress printing techniques
as well as conventional and innovative book binding structures to
hundreds of students. Her work is beautiful, challenging, moving and
dynamic, and is in many internationally prominent collections.
Saturday, December 3, 2-3:30 p.m.
Please join us for the exhibition, refreshments and music by Foghorn
Stringband. Artist Barbara Tetenbaum and exhibition curator Jim Carmin,
